Moonen Matica Build Continues As Moonen Yard Resumes Work

It is well known that financial problems struck the Dutch pocket-yacht builder Moonen causing them to shut-down operations. Great news now fills the air with the formal announcement on November 20th that the yard has resumed work. The Moonen 'Matica' is part of the Moonen Caribbean range of yachts the yard announced nearly 2 years ago. The 'Martinique' hull is also well advanced and is reportedly 90-percent completed and is presently up for sale. Any one can have her and still make interior alterations and have her delivered by the Spring of 2017.

In a statement recently released it said in part, "Moonen Shipyards has built many award-winning motoryachts over the decades but Saturday 14 November 2015 may well go down as one of the most pivotal moments in the yard’s distinguished history,” the statement reads. “As the hull and superstructure of the 30 meter motoryacht Matica were joined together, it symbolized the unity and determination to see the yard come out of its recent financial turmoil and regain its place as a leading exponent of premium quality yachts."
